here is a video on baking polymer clay using convection oven.
here is the link to this convection oven. I bought when it was on sale and it’s worth every penny I spent.

hey guys welcome to Aussie rush in this video I'm going to show you guys how I personally baked Palmer clay creations if you are new to Palmer clay it is open baked clay and there are instructions on the package that you can follow different brands require a different temperature and baking time so make sure to follow the instructions carefully also do not microwave the Palmer clay I don't know what will happen but in my melt and give off toxic smell so use ovens there are three types of ovens you can use to bake Palmer clay the first one is the stove will home oven it has stable temperature but a little bit big for baking small chunks second is the toaster oven which doesn't have a stable temperature and can have hot spots there is the convection oven which has a better temperature than the toaster oven because of the fan that he has and the oven that I use is a convection oven which I love so much the size is perfect for baking small amounts of charms but the oven is a bit pricey so make sure to look out for sales and I got this one at Target the brand I use is KitchenAid if you are wondering the most important material that you need to invest in is the oven thermometer for checking if the temperature is accurate or not when you turn the oven dial the oven temperature can be off by few degrees so make sure to have one of these to prevent polymer clay from under a big – or overbaked there is a tray inside since I'm using a convection oven there are four dials function temperature time and toast I'm not toasting the polymer clay so I leave that off turn the function to bake and before baking your palm your clay always preheat the oven first and take out the tray I always turn the dial at 300 degrees Fahrenheit and set the time to five minutes for preheating when you bake make sure you are in a ventilated space with Windows because it would be a bit of smell for baking the Palmer clay while the oven is preheating I place the charms on the tray so want the oven finished preheating I can just slide the tray in also I leave a space for the oven thermometer on the left side of the tray okay so the oven is done preheating I use a scissors to pick up the oven thermometer so I can slide the tray in once this offset I turn the temperature to 275 degrees Fahrenheit like II says on the package and turn the time to 15 minutes I like to check back every five to ten minutes and how the temperature is on the oven thermometer if it's also temperature is a bit low or high I will just adjust a temperature dial to an appropriate degree the oven is done baking and I use this long wooden block tool and the oven door open a little bit for the heat to escape slowly because the clay is still curing and you don't want the polymer clay to crew down too fast because that can crack the clay and pretty much break your creations that you put so much time into so always let it cool slowly once although he has escaped you can check by the oven thermometer and then you can take the tray out now all you have to do is glaze or add pins for more details I hope this is helpful to you guys and giving idea about baking polymer clay again this is based on my own experience if you have any more questions just let me know and I will answer them to the best of my knowledge thank you for watching and see you later
